LUCAS project

Links United for Coma Awakenings through Sport

LUCAS European Sport Collaborative Partnership

This project, funds on Erasmus Plus - Sport Programme, aims to create a stable European network for sharing information, expertise and good practices in terms of models of rehabilitation through Sport, for the successful reintegration of people with acquired disability from traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury (in particular resulting from a coma) and their families/caregivers.

The partnership will develop and test a structured, multidisciplinary and integrated experimental methodology of rehabilitation through sport for these people. It will be a comprehensive rehabilitation plan assisted by qualified personnel aimed not only to a physical rehabilitation but also to a successful social reintegration of people with acquired disability and their families.

Along with a network of nine European countries, in collaboration with the Association “Gli Amici di Luca”. This is a great satisfaction also because we got the high patronage of the European Parliament for this initiative. Last Saturday, October 3rd, we realized a seminar in Torino, European Capital of Sport 2015, with good public participation (more than 100 people present).

On the project website http://lucasproject.eu/7th-october/ you can view the full events’ program, in addition to a video, public service announcement (in Italy “Pubblicità Progresso” broadcast by local and national TV stations and now distributed in cinemas nationwide) by the Italian testimonial, the actor Alessandro Bergonzoni.
